Integration: The Final Step in Change Management
The final step in successful change management is the Integration stage. Here’s how to bring everything together. Watch now.
I don’t know about you, but Microsoft Ignite 2016 feels like years ago to me. On the second day of the event this year, we announced our intention to join the Quadrotech group, which came into effect on November 15. In the whirlwind of excitement, ideas and plans that have followed, we haven’t yet had a chance to properly introduce ourselves.
A bit about us
In 2012, as two IT admins working on a migration project, we received request after request for information on how the migration was progressing – which meant producing the same tedious PowerShell scripts and reports over and over again to find out what was going on inside Office 365. We figured ‘there must be a tool that can automate this’, but couldn’t find anything to fit the bill. Once the project ended we thought, there must be other companies out there with the same problem, so we put together a few reports in a basic web application that became the starting point for our flagship product: Cogmotive Office 365 Reports.
Today Cogmotive has more than 3000 customers across 200 countries, representing over 4 million Office 365 seats. We certainly feel like we’ve come a long way – but our aim has stayed simple: To provide organisations in the cloud with the right information and tools to make informed business decisions.
Our mission is by no means complete, and every time we speak with our customers we uncover new ways we can help them solve business problems.
Why we’re excited about joining forces with Quadrotech
It was immediately clear to us that together with the talented team at Quadrotech, we can drive far more value for our customers and partners than we can alone. Together we provide an end-to-end solution that guides you through the hurdles of migrating to Office 365, and gives you the information and visibility you need when you get there. We know that your work doesn’t stop when the migration is completed, it just changes, and our solutions enable you to intelligently manage your Office 365 investment, and help you to maximise and measure the value you receive from it.
Preparations for integrating Cogmotive and Quadrotech are already well underway, as we find the best ways to leverage the strengths of both teams to increase value, develop new products and offer more opportunities for our customers.
We’re excited to see what the future holds, and if you want to keep an eye on what we’re up to, and what we’re interested in, we also have a blog – why not check it out?
